Product Overview

The Complete 2nd Season of Saturday Night Live (SNL)

For over three decades, Saturday Night Live has been the source of young comedic talent and helped to launch the careers of countless performers, making them household names. Still considered iconic for their live performances from Studio 8H in New York, the original cast of SNL (including Dan Aykroyd, Gilda Radner and John Belushi) set the tone for years to follow with their irreverent, edgy humor. They combined anti-establishment political satire with rock-and-roll attitude for a show that spoke to the youth of the 1970's, turning it into an instant sensation. Although only the second year on the air, the 1976-1977 season turned out to be the last for Chevy Chase, but the first for a young comedian named Bill Murray. The Complete Second Season of SNL contains legendary musical performances by artists Joe Cocker, The Band, Brian Wilson, Paul Simon, George Harrison, Frank Zappa, Chuck Berry, The Kinks, Carlos Santana and Tom Waits and classic appearances by hosts Lily Tomlin, Norman Lear, Steve Martin, Dick Cavett, Jodie Foster, Candice Bergen, Ralph Nader, Fran Tarkenton, Sissy Spacek, Elliott Gould and Shelly Duvall.

Editors Note
Note These actors might not have been ready for TV's family hour (as their moniker "The Not Ready for Prime Time Players" would suggest), but with names such as Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Gilda Radner, and Jane Curtin, they were certainly ready for the big time. The second season of Lorne Michaels's variety show marks the departure of the beloved Chevy Chase, but that wound was mended with the arrival of a new talent: Bill Murray, who became an audience favorite. SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE's 1976-1977 season features more of the deft combination of smarts and silliness that made the first year such a success. The show's sophomore year also boasts the comedy of hosts such as Lily Tomlin, Jodie Foster, Elliott Gould, and Steve Martin, as well as musical guests including the Band, Paul Simon, Frank Zappa, Santana, and Tom Waits.
